We won the competition in the RoboCup Rescue League at RoboCup German Open 2012! For the finals, we used a combination of one autonomous and one teleoperated robot. We additionally won the "Best in class autonomy" for making the best maps of the rescue arena and finding the most victims autonomously.

We uploaded 2 videos from our participation in RoboCup 2011. They do not show the competition, but related testing of two systems related to our research:
We recorded a dataset of the RoboCup 2011 Rescue Arena with our handheld mapping system. A video showing processing of the dataset by our SLAM system is available here:
Even though haunted by technical problems (thermal camera, differential gears and camera servos all caused technical problems at different times) we were successful at RoboCup 2011, only missing the "Best in Class Autonomy" award by 1 point (team CASuality scored 19 points, we scored 18). We'll release some videos and photos of our RoboCup 2011 participation soon.
We uploaded two datasets recorded using our handheld embedded mapping system. A video is available for one of the datasets, showing mapping in the L101 building of TU Darmstadt:
The other dataset was recorded in the RoboCup Rescue arena shortly after the official end of missions at the RoboCup German Open 2011 competition.
The datasets can be downloaded at:
We won the competition in the RoboCup Rescue League at RoboCup German Open 2011! We used a combination of one autonomous and one teleoperated robot, with both providing accurate maps of the arena. We additionally share the "Best in class autonomy" award with our friends from team ResKo Koblenz. Further information will be posted here soon.
The whole Rescue Robot League at German Open 2011
We found three victims (in the orange arena, semi-autonomous) in today's first run.
With this run, we are currently overall leader of the competition. Our next run starts in a few minutes.
Now we have to fix some behavior issues to head for the best-in-class autonomy award.
We found the first and only yellow (to be found by an autonomous robot) victim today! Working on further improvements now.
A video showing both external camera as well as internal robot data of our 3rd place winning run at SICK robot day 2010 can now be watched here.
